Multiplicity Magazine publishes two issues annually, one in the autumn and one in the spring. We consider submissions of short-form creative nonfiction (500-1,500 words), long-form creative nonfiction (1,500-5,000 words), poetry, flash nonfiction (up to 500 words), and photgraphy from established and emerging writers.  We read submissions from August 1st to June 30.

We will not knowingly publish submissions that are slanderous, libelous, racist, sexist, ageist, or otherwise intentionally discriminatory or offensive. All works must be original and must not be subject to copyright restrictions. For each issue, the journal publishes one submission per selected author/artist. After our final review is complete, our Editorial Staff will notify each submitter of the status of their work.

Submissions must be sent in digital format via Submittable. Text submissions should be sent in a file format that can readily be edited on a computer (Microsoft Word and Google Doc are preferred).

Our submission process is blind. Do not include your name or other personally identifying information on any of the pages of your submission or in the file name. Do include a cover letter providing complete, accurate contact information for you.

Nonfiction submissions should be in Times New Roman or a similar serif font, 12 pt, with one-inch margins all around. Please paginate and includethe title of the work on each page. All work should be carefully proofread (ideally out loud) before it is submitted.

Poetry submissions may include up to five poems per issue; stanzas should be single spaced and there should be no more than one poem per page.

Photographs should be submitted in a format that can be opened and manipulated in Photoshop CS5 (e.g., JPG and PNG are preferred). Submitted images should not include vectors or layers.

Submissions are reviewed by our editorial board. We reserve the right to edit all submissions for accuracy and consistency. Each submission is edited according to the spelling, grammar, and punctuation conventions of American English; we follow the conventions detailed in the Chicago Manual of Style.  In its editing, Multiplicty Magazine strives to preserve each submitter’s unique voice and artistic intent over absolute grammatical or idiomatic correctness. A style sheet  is available upon request.
